The Kemp Sketch

(What is this?) | Download the original typescript

HENRY, CHARLES M. -- His name appears on the official San Jacinto rolls printed in 1836, as a member of Captain William J. E. Heard's company.

The records in the Spanish Archives in the General land Office do not show that Mr. Henry received any land from the Mexican Government. This is an indication, at least, that he was not living in Texas as early as the year 1834.

The Land Office records also fail to show that Mr. Henry received headright, bounty, or donation lands from the Republic, or State, of Texas.

No information concerning Mr. Henry is contained in the comptroller's Military Service Records in the Archives of the Texas State Library.

The biographies have been scanned from the original typescripts, a process that sometimes allows for mistakes in the new text.
